Culver School Board Makes Arrangements for Bus Purchase

The Culver Community Schools Corporation is looking to replace an extra school bus this year. Bus 24 was scheduled to be replaced in 2020, but school officials have decided to move that forward, according to Treasurer Casey Howard. The school board took steps to make funds available earlier this month. But Howard told board members this week that the 2018 through 2030 bus replacement plan had to be amended before the state would allow the additional appropriation. The school board passed a resolution Monday to accept the amended plan.

Howard said the change will not increase the overall number of buses belonging to the school corporation. She added that the goal is to reduce transportation expenses, to prepare for the new school funding structure. The Bus Replacement, Transportation, and Capital Projects funds will be combined into a new Operations Fund at the start of 2019.

In other business Monday, the Culver School Board approved an agreement with Go Solutions Group, for continued Medicaid reimbursement services.
